These delicate earrings are incredibly soft to the touch. 24K gold-plated chains peak out between the feathers to add texture. Coque feathers are from unique roosters that grow these exceptionally long feathers and shed them once a year. These birds have been bred for over 100 years by fly fishermen, who use the feathers as fishing lures. Sustainably sourced in the USA. Earwires are gold-plated. Length ranges from 5" to 6" total.
